Who Wants Tickets?

Ticket sales opened yesterday in both Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta ahead of the widely anticipated ASEN Football Federation Cup Final between Malaysia and Indonesia. The first leg will be held in KL on Sunday with Jakarta hosting the second leg on 29 December.

In Malaysia fans headed to Bukit Jalil to snap up tickets will all the RM 50 seats already sold out. At the same time Indonesians headed to their embassy in KL to buy from their allocation. They have received 15,500 for the game at the 88,000 seater stadium.

In Jakarta 24,000 Category One tickets were sold out within four hours at the Bung Karno Stadium. Some fans had started queuing five hours before the ticket offices opened.

Indonesian officials are releasing just over 76,000 tickets for the second leg

Stop me if you've heard this one:

Fans queue for hours to get tickets, fans get asked to wait inside the stadium (!) until their names are called, organizers run out of tickets, ticketless fans run riot, attack ticketing staff, swipe ticket vouchers and damage the pitch and stadium, ticket staff being paid Rp 100,000 a day flee for their safety, the PSSI look like idiots ... again.
